BOBO Friday March 17 – Food Bank Collection

Posted on March 10, 2017

The next “Buy One, Bring One” collection of food for Somerset County families and individuals in need will be held Friday, March 17.

To donate canned or boxed items, look for the blue BOBO Fridays bins in the vestibule of the Mary Jacobs Library.  Other local libraries hosting the bins include the Bound Brook Memorial Library, Bridgewater Library, Manville Library, North Plainfield Library, Peapack-Gladstone Library, Somerville Public Library, Warren Township Library and Watchung Library.

Collection drop-points are also found at these county locations: Somerset County Administration Building, 20 Grove St., Somerville; Park Commission Headquarters, 355 Milltown Road, Bridgewater; and Lord Stirling Stable, 256 S. Maple Ave., Basking Ridge.

Towns that have BOBO Fridays bins in their municipal buildings are Bedminster, Bound Brook, Franklin, Green Brook, North Plainfield and Raritan.

Although the “BOBO Fridays” collection date is the third Friday of every month, the bins are always available, so donations may be dropped off at any time during regular business hours at all locations.
